Research shows that effective decision making requires advance planning; high-functioning teams take time to consciously decide and think through their approach to making decisions. This tool prepares participants to apply a set of decision-making techniques that have been used successfully with many different types of teams.

This session will provide you with a suite of practical, easy-to-implement techniques and methods for structuring and running team meetings to maximize accountability, effectiveness, efficiency, and follow-through.

    Accountability is a cornerstone of effective teamwork. Accountable team members generate trust and respect, drive performance, and produce results. The key to success is establishing a process that ensures that clear, focused commitments can be made and kept within the team—and if not kept, dealt with in a constructive, productive manner. This tool trains participants in a powerful framework that incorporates every step of the accountability process, from initial action generation to execution and follow-up.
